SA works hard behind the scenes

While I will never say a person should not have his or her own opinions, it is important, I think, for everyone’s opinions to be informed. The op-ed “SA needs to get a clue,” published in the Oct. 13 issue of The GW Hatchet (p. 5) was definitely not an informed opinion piece. Mr. Meinert’s […]

GW readies for two key A-10 matches

This weekend could make or break the GW women’s volleyball team’s up-and-down season. GW stands in seventh place in the Atlantic 10, three matches behind an impressive Temple squad that is alone atop the conference. Five teams sit between Temple and GW. Virginia Tech, one of the five teams, visits the Smith Center Friday at […]

SA needs to prove itself to students

Recently, public debate over the purpose and function of the Student Association, specifically the Senate, has resumed. These attacks on the Senate are not unfounded and are quite valid. So far this year, the accomplishments of the Senate, the most significant branch of the SA, have been nominal. The Senate, however, continues to discredit itself […]

Rouss?ve’s “Love Songs” unites themes of love and oppression

Love is the threshold all souls cross. It permeates the mind and becomes the body. Love never dies and passion only grows. David Rouss?ve brings these passions to life in “Love Songs,” a production that will be presented by the Washington Performing Arts Society at GW’s Lisner Auditorium this weekend. Rouss?ve transcends time and captures […]

GW’s top talker comes under fire

GW law professor Jonathan Turley never could have predicted the course his life has taken in recent months. He has been one of the preeminent talking heads in the daily saturation commentary on President Clinton’s scandal. He has appeared on countless political talk and news programs – 39 appearances between January and mid-August by one […]

A Beloved Film

Beloved wields a power few films do. From the opening scene, Beloved (Touchstone Pictures) firmly grips the audience and never relinquishes its hold, lingering in viewers’ minds long after the final credits roll. Summarizing the thought-provoking plot in a few meager paragraphs is impossible. Based on Toni Morrison’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name, […]
